Are you trying to locate the will on public records? If so, make sure that you get the correct county for your father's address. Google is a good resource for that. While, as mentioned, the will is supposed to be filed within 10 days of a person's passing, many times the next of kin or personal representative cannot locate the last executed original of the will, in which case a will "search" will have to be performed or a verification of a copy done in court. In any case, any AVVO wills and probate lawyer can help you with this sort of information, or a local lawyer of your choice.
